LEFFE ROYALE ELLA 7.5°

 

From Ab-Inbev brewery

The hop selected for this Leffe Royale is the hops Ella, original hops from the Derwent Valley in Tasmania. This hops delivers woody, fruity notes of oak, black tea, passion fruit and blackcurrant. Hopping raw.
Probably the most complex Leffe Royale so far. Definitely not a main-stream beer, but high quality. Ella hops is known for it’s complex flavor that doesn’t showcase one or two main flavors and so does this beer. The hop flavor is well embedded in the overall beer aroma.

It is of course advisable to taste the Leffe Royale Ella in its chalice glass. We will appreciate it as an aperitif of course, but also at the table with your summer barbecues for example.

Leffe Caractere 9°

 From AB-Inbev brewery

Character by Leffe, beer brewed with whiskey.
 
A delicate and unique manufacturing process.
 
Character by Leffe: a unique beer that has matured for four weeks on wood chips macerated in a Scotch whiskey.
 
To brew Character by Leffe, the master brewers have elaborated an unprecedented recipe. They started from the observation that the flavors of vanilla and clove brought by Leffe’s yeast combine perfectly with the woody aromas. To create this alliance, they plunged oak wood chips into Scotch whiskey, dried them. And finally deposited them in a vat of ale for maturation. After numerous experiments, master brewers discovered that four weeks was the ideal time needed for wood chips to diffuse their flavors in beer. This sophisticated brewing process is one of the reasons why Character by Leffe is so unique and offered in limited edition.
